BEAUTIFUL CONFUSION COLLECTIVE
interdisciplinary, international performance
Beautiful Confusion Collective makes international, interdisciplinary performance, inspired by the body and the socio-cultural terrains through which it moves. From our roots in physical theatre, contemporary dance and performance, we produce interdisciplinary work for theatres, galleries and site-specific locations. Based in London and Prague, a spirit of border-crossing infuses our work.
Collaboration is at the centre of what we do, and we work to keep it interdisciplinary, non-hierarchical, performer-driven and always in service to the work and the spectator. Our performance work is grounded in rich dramaturgy, strong images and clear intentionality. We strive always to run towards and embrace complexity. In all that we do, our intention is to bring spectators into closer dialogue with themselves, one which might not have existed otherwise.
At ANA's Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre in Crouch End, North London, we established the Theatre Development Studio and co-founded ImpFest: The Impermanent Festival of Contemporary Performance.
Our work has been supported by Arts Council England and Canada Council for the Arts and has appeared at: Alfred ve dvoře (Prague, CZ); Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells (London, UK); Vyrsodepseio (Athens, GR); Ply Gallery (London, UK); Theatre Utopia (Croydon, UK) and University of Worcester (UK). Festivals appearances include: low stakes at New River Studios (2017); Bloomsbury Festival (2016); Brighton Fringe (2016 - Space to Dance Award nomination for BackStories); ImpFest (2015, 2016); and Pallet Paradise (Manor House, London 2015).
